PSYC 268

This course is designed to provide students with an introduction to the field of health psychology. This will be done through an emphasis on the Canadian health care delivery system. Health psychology is concerned with the contributions of psychology to the promotion and maintenance of health, the prevention and treatment of illness, and the identification of etiologic and diagnostic concerns. Given that health psychology is primarily an applied discipline, the focus of the course will be on the applications of health psychology in the health field.
